Aluminum window weather stripping

A home owner from Frederick, CO says:
I have three (4'x4') aluminum basement windows that need the weather stripping replaced. I think the sides (I included 2 pics- IMG 0876/0878) and the top use the 9/16 commercial bubble weatherstrip. Please let me know what you think.

The bottom uses a different type of weather strip and I can't locate it in your catalog. I submitted a cross section (IMG 0873) for your assistance.

Thank you

Hello! The one seal looks somewhat like our 58-135, but I'm not sure about the one shown in your first picture. That is very strange. Can you show me how it mounts in the window?

As for the 58-135, how do the dimensions match up?
A quick learner says:
The first piece is a cross section. It slides into place as one long piece along the bottom of the window. I don't think you carry this item.

The dimension of the 58-135 has a 3/16 at the base. I thought the 58-134 was a closer match, but i don't know if that is typically used for windows.

Thank you.

You could use the 58-134 as long as the dimensions match up. That said, have you considered using a wool pile as a substitute? Take a look at our wool pile section and see if you can find something with the dimensions you need.
